‘Duckies’ Flying Toward a Pennant

The Not So Mighty Ducks, affectionately known as the “Duckies,” are Nassau County’s entry in the All-Avian Baseball League (AABL). With two weeks to go in the regular season, the hi-flying Duckies are leading their conference and have their fans in the grip of pennant fever. For those not familiar with the team, here’s what it looks like position by position with a breakdown of how players field, run and throw.

First Base: This position requires a rangy bird that can stretch out for errant throws while keeping his foot on the base. The loon is a perennially Gold Glove winner. On close plays his eerie cry can chill base runners causing them to break stride and be called out. “Loonie,” as he is affectionately known to his teammates, because of his likeness on the Canadian one-dollar coin, is a “money” player.

Meet the Folks!

I am so ashamed!

I have been writing this column for about 12 years and I have never spoken about my beloved parents to my beloved readers. Unfortunately, my parents are both gone now, but I feel their lives were interesting enough to warrant an introduction.

I am writing this column as I sit and wait for Hurricane Irene to unleash its potential havoc on Long Island. It is an odd feeling as I watch the television and follow the storm’s course to see when and where it will hit Long Island. Like most of my neighbors, I have moved my outdoor furniture into the garage, cleared everything off the basement floor and moved anything of value from the lower level to the higher level of my home. Now the wait is on. This hurricane is coming just one week after the earthquake shook us last week. Unlike many, that was the first earthquake I have ever felt. When it happened, I was seeing a patient in my office. The exam room door started to shake and both the patient and I thought someone was trying to get into the room. I opened the door and found no one on the other side but did note that the building was shaking. Not really sure what was going on, we organized the office, led everyone down the steps and waited in the parking lot to get the all clear and learn that we had just felt the earthquake.

After the Storm

There was no calm after the storm!

Irene blasted her way across the eastern coast of America like a scorned woman getting even with a cheating lover. She brought winds that toppled sturdy trees and rainwater that flooded highways that looked underused. She turned the lights off in many single homes and many condominiums, even those with underground wiring.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many generous residents of the Sixth Senate District and beyond, who donated items to my “Back to School Drive” initiative.

Many community members dropped off important supplies to my community office this month including backpacks, spiral and marble notebooks, loose leaf, binders, crayons, markers, colored pencils, pencils, pencil cases, ballpoint pens, rulers, glue-sticks, scissors. These supplies will be distributed to underprivileged children residing within my district just in time for the new school year.

My Cousin Hymie

My cousin Hymie died three weeks ago, at the age of 90. He was one of my favorite cousins. His given name was Herman.

Herman is not a great name in my opinion, but Hymie was a great guy. He always had a joke on his lips or a puzzle, or funny saying. He was never negative about anything.

I attended his wedding to Dorothy in the Bronx when I was 13 years old (1947- you do the arithmetic.) It was held at the Imperial Manor on Westchester Avenue, and I remember the noise of a subway train drowning out the marriage oaths.

Vaccination against disease is one of the major advances in medicine and has helped prevent disease in countless individuals. Despite the importance of vaccination, many people in our country do not get the routine vaccinations, which are available. This action places them at risk of getting sick but also places those around them at risk of becoming ill. Which vaccines am I talking about? These vaccines include but are not limited to the influenza vaccine, the Pneumovax or pneumonia vaccine and the hepatitis A and B vaccines. Why don’t Americans get these vaccines? The answer is complex but usually comes down to several simple issues. Some of the issues are the lack of awareness of need, the lack of awareness of availability and the lack of the insurance company to pay for preventive medicine. As this is the Liver Lines, I would like to say a few words about the hepatitis B vaccine.

My TV Watching

I do not watch television in the morning. The last time I watched something in the morning was Sept. 11, 2001. I received a call from Adam, my son, who worked in the Wall Street area.

I can watch a World Cup Soccer Match or Australian tennis match, even if it is broadcast at 2 or 3 a.m., but that’s about it for the morning. My television viewing really starts at about 4 p.m. with Judge Judith Sheindlin. She seems to properly enumerate the law, with all its intricacies, to her TV audience. Of course, she is strident and punishes severely those who speak out of turn. The cases are not earthshaking, but she does carry out the true sense of the law.

The Recession

I’m not a big fan of roller coasters. I certainly don’t like the actual ones. I can barely even look at them without getting a little nauseous. But I don’t much care for the metaphorical ones, either. Specifically, I could do without the stock market falling into a terrifying descent, rising back up, and then tumbling some more.

It’s certainly no fun. We’re staring down the threat of another recession, and it’s hard to say where we’ll end up. However, we’ve seen record drops followed by chaos, and that doesn’t exactly inspire me with confidence.

My Radio Programs

Starting at 6 a.m. with Rambling with Gambling on WOR710 on your radio dial, my day is spent listening to the radio. John Gambling’s a reasonable guy who asks pertinent questions and follows up; he also has great guests, like Mayor Bloomberg among others. John and I seem to be on a similar wavelength- I used to listen to his father and grandfather.

Imus is not my cup of tea but I do occasionally switch to 880 CBS to get the latest news. At noon, in the car, I listen to Rush Limbaugh on 770 WABC. This will disgust many of my readers, but he explains much of what is happening in Washington D.C.
